The exhibition

An initiative promoted by:
Municipality of Brescia, Fondazione Brescia Musei

In collaboration with:
Ma.Co.f – Centro della Fotografia Italiana

From 8 March to 28 July 2024, as part of Testimoni, the 7th edition of the Brescia Photo Festival, the Museo di Santa Giulia is hosting an exhibition commemorating, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the Piazza della Loggia massacre of 28 May 1974, in which eight people lost their lives.

Starting from some of the photographs in Renato Corsini’s portfolio, one of the most lucid accounts of those tragic days, Maurizio Galimberti creates, following his compositional grammar, a large installation, based on an idea by Paolo Ludovici, with 40 compositions and a series of 50×60 cm Polaroids, in which he breaks down and resematises, according to his most characteristic expressive style, the images of that period reportage, as well as posters, newspaper articles and drawings, thus allowing the public to reflect, also through the medium of photography, on the scope and dramatic nature of that tragic and very serious event.


For reasons of conservation of the museum’s works, the temperature in the rooms is around 20°C.
Visitors are therefore advised to bring an item of clothing to cover themselves during the visit.
